Description

A mutagen is an agent (physical, chemical or biological) capable of altering the structure of DNA within our cells. Mutagens generally act either directly on the DNA themselves or produce chemicals that in turn act on the DNA causing substitutions, deletions, insertions, or rearrangement of important genetic code. In this program we take a look inside the human body to discover how the DNA in our cells can be affected by chemicals, radiation, and other things we encounter in our everyday lives. We also discuss how mutagens can result in the development of cancers in the human body.
